Beautiful location, great amenities, lots to do in town and around camp site. Only complaint would be the trains that run night and day that are so close to this site you can feel the ground shake. If you have young babies, they will not be able to sleep here. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Tent.

Campground has 30 & 50 amp area. We were in the old 30 amp area with FUSE boxes. Our power blew those old screw in fuses and we had to wait until morning to get another fuse. We had only our fridge and clock using electricity. We left messages on their answering machine, but they did not return our calls. Employee in the morning didn't know where the answering machine was. Dusty campground that advertises that they deliver pizza to your site. The kitchen area is messy and dirty and not appetizing. STAY AWAY! We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

We love this park and have stayed here several times. Pros: location is within walking distance to hot springs. Riverside sites are beautiful. Bathrooms/showers very nice and private. Cons: sites are small, railroad and highway noises are loud. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Travel Trailer.

This was one of the worst KOA's we stayed at during a 2-1/2 week vacation. Sites are crowded and you are either at the edge of a tiny dirty river or about 10 ft from a major highway. We moved from our "pull thru" site because it had a half buried building in front of the space to one by the freeway - lots of semis and several trains run by. No river access for the kids which wasn't a big loss considering. Sewers are not capped except by large rock or tin can - smell is terrible. Has to be a health hazard. Find a different spot to stay. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

My site was not close to level. Personnel were friendly and helpful. Large pull through sites are double so you also have a place for your truck. Trains are a problem without earplugs for they come 2-3 per hour and the campsite is at the bottom of a steep grade so the trucks are extra noisy. Spent two days and decided to move on.

Although it was nice to be by the river, the sites are small and very close together. On the weekends, the park is full of kids and families. We would not stay here again. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Travel Trailer.

I have no idea why anyone would rate this park over a '3'. The park owner was nice enough, but the 50A sites are not even close to being even. The drive out there is 5 miles of nice 4 lane and then a one land bridge with a traffic light (not the CG fault, but it is what it is). Then 2 lanes and a very small pull in portion for the CG. Trains are incredibly loud, I mean very loud. Wi-Fi worked but not super well, all in all it's not a KOA quality CG. I hope they work on getting it better, but as of now, I would never ever return to this CG. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

I was really surprised by all the positive comments regarding this park. The location to town, river and WiFi were the only thing we found as a plus. The entrance to the park is definitely a negative, there were 2 RVs in front of us and our tow ended up on the highway with no way to move it or the rig. The site we were assigned was not level, dog waste around electrical and water connection, plus trash in site next to us. It was hard to figure out which site was ours because there were two slots for the site, the rig in front of us had the same problem, very confusing. The highway and train tracks are very close, they normally don't bother us but they did during our stay. We ended up leaving early so we could get down the road to find a spot to sleep. The owners must have purchased an older park and are trying to update it, but they have a long way to go. It did have nice tent sites which were along the river. We would not return to this RV Park. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

Enjoyed everything about this park, bathrooms and showers brand new. Very friendly staff. Nice sized sites. Floating down the river was a blast. Hot springs and pool w/ slides was in walking distance and cheap $11/day. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

The park is quite small, but it is very lovely. The mosquitos are quiet bad and I will not let that reflect my overall stay at this park. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

Park managers were very friendly, but the facility is in need of repairs. The men's bathroom showers had uncovered holes in the walls, and the outside door lock was broken. The RV spaces need to be leveled. Lots of highway and train noise. We stayed only 1 night. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Fifth Wheel.

A distance away from the interstate (about 13 miles), but this park is located right on a well traveled road. Also there is a train track close by, and we had a few freight trains interrupt our sleep. Location is right on a very pretty river, with many trees in the area we stayed in. Owners were extremely nice, and seem to be working hard to improve this older park. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Motorhome.

We were pleasantly delighted with the friendliness of the campground owners. All other staff we meet were friendly and helpful. The owners spend each day improving this campground. The day we departed they were busy installing new brick fire rings. We were able to walk to the Hot Springs via a small trail connecting to main street. We can't wait to return to see what else has been upgraded. We camped at Lava Hot Springs KOA in a Travel Trailer.
